When it comes to using illicit drugs, my policy has always been “Just say no.” When it comes to hamburgers, though, my mantra has always been, “Supersize that for me.” While Nancy Reagan’s advice was keeping me off horse, that square-patty pusherman Dave Thomas was hooking me on the beef.

Although I knew junk food wasn’t good for me, no one ever warned me that eating a cheeseburger is just like shooting up smack . Why didn’t the current First Lady warn us? Why am I just now hearing about this from the Australians ?

Now that we know the truth about burgers we need to make some changes. If you care about the kids at all, Ronald, you’ll do the right thing and have McDonald’s start adding methadone to the Happy Meals.
